Comprehensive duty of care audit
Driving on company business is typically the most dangerous activity a company ever asks their employees to undertake on its behalf and circa 30% of all fatalities on UK roads are associated with incidents occurring during “at work” business journeys.
A business driver covering 25,000 miles or more per annum has a 1 in 8000 chance in being killed whilst driving at work and indeed very sadly this equates to circa 20 deaths per week.
Somewhat surprisingly many employers are still unwittingly none compliant to their obligations in this area of risk and hence at risk and exposed due to their failure to manage “Occupational Road Risk” (ORR) and fulfil their Duty of Care responsibilities and comply with current Health and Safety HSE “Driving at Work” Guidelines.
Our comprehensive Compliance Audit will review all current procedures and practices and deliver practical recommendations to ensure a robust “best practice” approach is in place – including data capture and reporting – as well as advice on taking proven steps to proactively improve driver safety and reduce on-road accidents and hence reduce related costs – as well guidance on improving fuel consumption and vehicle wear and tear.
Working with relevant internal stakeholders, any existing related Policy Documents will either be revised to achieve best practice status or – if they do not currently exist – created and specifically tailored to meet the needs of the business eg. A Driver Safety Policy, A Cash Allowance/ Grey Fleet Driver Policy etc. Support will also be provided with related driver communications and promoting and enhancing your safe driving culture.
Our approach therefore delivers total Corporate “peace of mind” and ensures that the business is taking all reasonable and required steps to protect the safety and well being of both your valued drivers and also your Corporate Reputation/Brand !
